    You put a straight peice, try using long black rods, or if you don't have any and it is still bending trying a weaker rubber band. you shoot it by putting the orange connector in between the rubber band so it is in the space pull back and let go.

    You put the blue rod through the whole in the rubberband then attach it to the yellow connectors.

    10-20 feet, ha sorry but that sucks, my mini bow which ill post later on fires 35-45 feet and its smaller and uses much les pieces, 2 wheels, 2 yellow rods, 4 blue rods, 4 white rods, 4 green conectors 2 red conectors, 1 snow flake. and of course a pretty good elastic band.

    its original but its not really efficient. a guy with a good gun would own some one with a sword... faust: do you have any new stuff in mind?

    Just the machine gun. If you pull it back and push it forward by hand, it works incredibly well!! Just one problem - gears can't support even weak rubber bands :( if somehow they could be strengthened, this thing would work!! A true machine gun!! Maybe I'll post a YouTube vid.
